Reward offered after Cash and Carry robbery05/11/2010
A company has offered a £10,000 reward after one of their stores was robbed on Wednesday night (3 November).
Booker, whose cash and carry store in Grantham was robbed after one of their employee’s was forced to open the premises, has offered the reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
Detectives investigating the robbery have meanwhile released details of a vehicle they want to trace.
When the Booker employee was abducted in Wolds Drive, Keyworth, at around 6pm on Wednesday night (3 November), the offenders also took his red Vauxhall Vectra and police are now trying to trace that vehicle’s whereabouts.
They are urging anyone who has seen a red Vauxhall Vectra which appears to have been abandoned or is parked in an unusual location to contact them immediately.
After committing the robbery, the offenders dumped the employee in a field in Leicestershire, shaken but physically uninjured.
Nottinghamshire Police Det Ch Insp Tony Heydon said: “Thankfully, while the victim in this incident has been left deeply shaken by his experience, he was not physically injured.
“Serious crimes of this nature are very rare and we are working extremely hard to identify and arrest those responsible.
“This was clearly well planned and I’m certain there are people out there who know who has done this. I hope the reward on offer from Booker encourages those people to come forward with information.
“We are working closely with the victim, Lincolnshire Police and Booker, who have offered a reward.
“We want to hear from anyone with information about the victim’s red Vauxhall Vectra or who saw a man being forced into a vehicle in Wolds Drive, Keyworth, between 5.30pm and 6pm.
“We’re also appealing for anyone who saw any suspicious activity at the Booker cash and carry in Grantham between 5.30pm and 9pm, or who saw a white Mercedes Sprinter van near Redmile in Leicestershire at about 9pm or thereafter to contact us immediately.”
Anyone with information about this incident should contact Nottinghamshire Police on 0300 300 9999. Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
